Weekend Reading – What I am planning on reading this weekend – #weekendreading #whatshouldIreadnext

This weekend I plan on making a start on my next Blog Tour book A Most Private Bank by Andreas F Clenow. I am looking forward to this as I feel like I haven’t read a Thriller in a while! I am also going to try and make more of a dent in my library book, Melmoth, by Sarah Perry. As I have mentioned before, I like the content of the book, but the style of writing is a bit confusing. I would like to get this read as soon as possible 1) because I only have 12 days left to borrow it and 2) it is the only book that I have read this month that ticks off my Gothic Fiction genre goal! Finally I want to read more of Book Lovers by Emily Henry. I am not sure how much of it I will get read this weekend as the other two books are more of a priority, but we shall see!

A Most Private Bank by Andreas F Clenow (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“”In this world, you either become a shark, or you become lunch.”
– Jim Dixon

A decade after Jim Dixon’s fall from grace, after the events that burnt his career on Wall Street, his past is catching up to him. Zurich had been the perfect place for a fresh start, a place where he could be a big fish in a small pond. The secretive world of Swiss high finance, a world of deception, greed, and excess, where everyone lies for one or another reason, provided the perfect cover. Until she showed up.

Meeting the socialite daughter of his former client was just a courtesy, nothing more. Another spoiled princess looking for VIP tickets to the opera, or a private shopping session at Louis Vuitton. So he thought. But Christina Rosenbaum was not the typical second generation heiress. This was the meeting that would set it all in motion.

Caught between unscrupulous bankers, hedge fund managers, organized crime, state actors, and law enforcement, Jim is left with no choice. One way or another, it will be over before the end of the week. This week would see careers destroyed, lives lost, and fortunes made.”

Melmoth by Sarah Perry (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“For centuries, the mysterious dark-robed figure has roamed the globe, searching for those whose complicity and cowardice have fed into the rapids of history’s darkest waters-and now, in Sarah Perry’s breathtaking follow-up to The Essex Serpent, it is heading in our direction.

It has been years since Helen Franklin left England. In Prague, working as a translator, she has found a home of sorts—or, at least, refuge. That changes when her friend Karel discovers a mysterious letter in the library, a strange confession and a curious warning that speaks of Melmoth the Witness, a dark legend found in obscure fairy tales and antique village lore. As such superstition has it, Melmoth travels through the ages, dooming those she persuades to join her to a damnation of timeless, itinerant solitude. To Helen it all seems the stuff of unenlightened fantasy.

But, unaware, as she wanders the cobblestone streets Helen is being watched. And then Karel disappears. . . . “

Book Lovers by Emily Henry (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

An insightful, delightful new novel from the number-one New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read and People We Meet on Vacation.

One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming….

Nora Stephens’ life is books – she’s read them all – and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away – with visions of a small-town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.

If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again – in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow – what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.”

Stacking The Shelves

Welcome to my Stacking The Shelves post, hosted by Reading Reality.

Back to my usual quiet book stacking post this week (thank goodness as my house is only small and my TBR pile is huge!). So this week I have signed up to two Blog Tours (awaiting the books) and my son borrowed just one book from the library.

Blog Tour Sign Ups:

Just For Today by Nell Hudson

Book Description:

“The party has to end sometime.

It all starts on New Year’s Eve. A night that has to be a success, whatever the cost. For Joni and her friends, it’ll be a party that promises all the high stakes and glamour of any other, but by sunrise they’ll be dealing with something darker than the usual post-party comedown.

Not that they let this stand in their way. For this is their year to revel in all that the playground of London has to offer: sneaking into places they shouldn’t, breaking every rule, falling in love with the wrong people. All the while avoiding one undeniable truth: it’s not if the party ends, it’s how.

JUST FOR TODAY is a bittersweet evocation of the end of innocence, and an exhilarating celebration of having nothing to lose – until suddenly, you do.”

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 23 June so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Amazon, Goodreads, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

My Son’s Library Book:

Weekend Reading – What I am planning on reading this weekend – #weekendreading #whatshouldIreadnext

As usual I have a Blog Tour coming up (17 May)! My weekend reading will therefore mainly focus on The Attic Child by Lola Jaye. I also hope to make a start on Book Lovers by Emily Henry and to read some more of my library book, Melmoth by Sarah Perry.

The Attic Child by Lola Jaye (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

A hauntingly powerful and emotionally charged novel about family secrets, love and loss, identity and belonging.

Two children trapped in the same attic, almost a century apart, bound by a shared secret.

Early 1900s London: Taken from his homeland, twelve-year-old Celestine spends most of the time locked away in the attic of a large house by the sea. The only time Celestine isn’t bound by confines of the small space is when he is acting as an unpaid servant to English explorer Sir Richard Babbington, As the years pass, he desperately clings on to memories of his family in Africa, even as he struggles to remember his mother’s face, and sometimes his real name . . .

1974: Lowra, a young orphan girl born into wealth and privilege whose fortunes have now changed, finds herself trapped in the same attic. Searching for a ray of light in the darkness of the attic, Lowra finds under the floorboards an old-fashioned pen, a porcelain doll, a beaded necklace, and a message carved on the wall, written in an unidentifiable language. Providing comfort for her when all hope is lost, these clues will lead her to uncover the secrets of the attic.”

Weekend Reading – What I am planning on reading this weekend – #weekendreading #whatshouldIreadnext

I have a couple of Blog Tours coming up and so this weekend will be concentrating on those:

Twelve Days In May by Niamh Hargan

Book Decription From Goodreads:

They haven’t spoken for 12 years.

Can they fall in love in 12 days?

Lizzy Munro is working at the Cannes Film Festival, in a job that involves a lot more admin than red-carpet glamour.

There, Ciaran Flynn is the man everyone is talking about: heartthrob of the moment and director of the most romantic movie of the year.

What nobody knows is that twelve years ago, they were best friends . . . and they haven’t spoken since.

But when Ciaran’s film runs into trouble, there’s only one person he can turn to.

Is twelve days enough to save not only Ciaran’s film, but also the spark he and Lizzy once shared?

The Attic Child by Lola Jaye

Weekend Reading (which includes World Book Night) – What I am planning on reading this weekend #weekendreading #whatshouldIreadnext #worldbooknight #romancenovel #thrillernovel

This weekend includes World Book Night (this evening) – click for link to website – so I am in two minds as to whether to carry on reading the Blog Tour books that I am currently reading (The Rabbit Factor by Antti Tuomainen and Hook, Line and Sinker by Tessa Bailey) or whether I read one of my Children’s Books that I am on the Blog Tour on later in May. I will do a World Book Night post later on this evening with my final answer!

The rest of the weekend will definitely consist of The Rabbit Factor by Antti Tuomainen, Hook, Line and Sinker by Tessa Bailey and Finlay Donovan Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano.

Weekend Reading – What I am planning on reading this weekend #weekendreading #whatshouldIreadnext

I have two Blog Tours coming up at the end of April (The Rabbit Factor by Antti Tuomainen and Hook, Line and Sinker by Tessa Bailey) so I will be trying to get a chunk of them read. I have also had Finlay Donovan Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano floating around for a while, so I would like to get a bit more of that read too. On top of that, as it is Easter, I have chosen a short, Easter (well egg) themed book to read. Fingers crossed I get some of this read!

Weekend Reading – What are you reading this weekend?

I have 4 books on the go at the moment which is unheard of for me. 3 is my maximum and even then I would prefer less! I have a number of Blog Tours coming up and a library book that I have been waiting weeks for has also just become available, so all in all I have a very busy reading schedule! This weekend I will be concentrating mainly on my two Blog Tour books; Welcome To Your Life by Bethany Rutter and Date With Betrayal by Julia Chapman:

Date With Betrayal by Julia Chapman

Book Description From Goodreads:

In the seventh novel in Julia Chapman’s Dales Detective series, betrayal is rife in the idyllic Yorkshire Dales as Samson O’Brien, owner of the Dales Detective Agency, is targeted by a hitman. Can Bruncliffe save him?

Death is coming to Bruncliffe; its target is Samson O’Brien.

Oblivious to his impending date with darkness, Samson is busy juggling a series of cases at the Dales Detective Agency. Too busy, in fact, to take the entreaties of a certain Mrs Lister seriously. The concerned mother is convinced her son Stuart – the local lettings agent at Taylor’s Estate Agents – has gone missing, despite evidence to the contrary.

But while Samson is otherwise engaged, Delilah knows what is coming. A hitman. Sent from London with one objective: silence the troublesome O’Brien once and for all before his corruption case can make it to court.

With Samson’s life in peril, Delilah has no choice but to turn to the people of Bruncliffe for help if she is to stop the hitman from achieving his objective. Only trouble is, the townsfolk have long memories and deep grievances when it comes to Samson O’Brien. They will take some convincing before they put themselves in danger in order to save him.

In a race against time, and with the life of the man she loves in the balance, Delilah will have to call on all of her connections built up over a lifetime in Bruncliffe in order to push back the darkness that is threatening to engulf the Dales town. But even that might not prove enough.” 

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 13 April so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Instagram, Facebook, Amazon, Goodreads and Twitter!

Welcome To Your Life By Bethany Rutter

Book Description From Goodreads:

Heart-warming, hilarious and unputdownable. You won’t want to miss this year’s stand out romantic comedy that’s perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane.
Serena Mills should be at her wedding.

Instead, she’s eating an ice cream sundae and drinking an obscenely large glass of wine in a Harvester off the M25.

Everyone thinks she’s gone mad. She’s jilted the man everyone told her she was ‘so lucky’ to find.

But Serena wants to find love. A love she deserves – not one she should just feel grateful for.

So, she escapes to the big city and sets herself a challenge:

52 weeks.
52 dates.
52 chances to find love.
Easy, right?”

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 11 April so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Instagram, Facebook, Amazon, Goodreads and Twitter!

Finlay Donovan Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Finlay Donovan is killing it…except, she’s really not. A stressed-out single mom of two and struggling novelist, Finlay’s life is in chaos: The new book she promised her literary agent isn’t written; her ex-husband fired the nanny without telling her; and this morning she had to send her four-year-old to school with hair duct-taped to her head after an incident with scissors.

When Finlay is overheard discussing the plot of her new suspense novel with her agent over lunch, she’s mistaken for a contract killer and inadvertently accepts an offer to dispose of a problem husband in order to make ends meet. She soon discovers that crime in real life is a lot more difficult than its fictional counterpart, as she becomes tangled in a real-life murder investigation.

Fast-paced, deliciously witty, and wholeheartedly authentic in depicting the frustrations and triumphs of motherhood in all its messiness, hilarity, and heartfelt moments, Finlay Donovan Is Killing It is the first in a brilliant new series from award-winning Elle Cosimano.”

I have been waiting for a chance to read this book for a long time, and finally I got a copy for Mother’s Day! I can’t wait to get started after all the positive reviews I have been seeing!

Shadow Flicker by Gregory Bastianelli (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

An old man nearly chokes to death after stuffing dandelion heads into his mouth. A pregnant cow repeatedly runs headlong into a fence post. Oscar Basaran investigates a series of strange events on the Kidney Island.

“From its highly original premise to its deliciously isolated setting, Gregory Bastianelli’s SHADOW FLICKER hooked me and kept me squirming until the very last page. An entertaining and emotional read. I had a blast!” — Jonathan Janz, Author of THE SIREN AND THE SPECTER and THE RAVEN

Investigator Oscar Basaran travels to Kidney Island off the coast of Maine to document the negative effects of shadow flicker from wind turbines on residents living near the windmills, but is unprepared for what he encounters from the islanders.

Oscar’s research shows that sleep deprivation, light deficiency and ringing headaches brought on by the noise and constant strobe-like effect of the sun filtered through the spinning blades of the turbines brings on hallucinatory episodes for the closest neighbors to the machines.

Melody Larson’s elderly father nearly chokes to death after stuffing dandelion heads into his mouth. The Granberrys’ pregnant cow repeatedly runs headlong into a fence post. Tatum Gallagher mourns her young son who vanished more than a year ago, presumed swept out to sea by a wave while fishing on the rocky shore, but several people claim to see him appear only in the glimmer of the shadow flicker.

Aerosource, the energy corporation that owns the turbines, hired Oscar to investigate the neighbors’ claims, but the insurance agent shows no allegiance to the conglomerate, especially after learning a previous employee sent to the island a year before has disappeared without a trace.

When Oscar meets former island school science teacher Norris Squires, fired for teaching his students about the harmful effects of shadow flicker, he learns a theory regarding Aerosource that sounds too preposterous to believe.

While it seems the shadow flicker effect has driven some of the island’s animals crazy, is it possible it’s caused an even worse mental breakdown among the human inhabitants? Or is something more nefarious at work on the island?

As Oscar’s investigation deepens, he discovers the turbines create an unexpected phenomena kept secret by a select group of people on Kidney Island who have made a scientific breakthrough and attempt to harness its dark power.”

I would like to make a bigger dent in this book this weekend. I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 8 April so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Instagram, Facebook, Amazon, Goodreads and Twitter!

I don’t have any Blog Tours now until April, so this weekend I am catching up on a couple of my own books. I do however have 5 Blog Tours in April, so I will be back to reading Blog Tour books next week!

The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Jess needs a fresh start. She’s broke and alone, and she’s just left her job under less than ideal circumstances. Her half-brother Ben didn’t sound thrilled when she asked if she could crash with him for a bit, but he didn’t say no, and surely everything will look better from Paris. Only when she shows up – to find a very nice apartment, could Ben really have afforded this? – he’s not there.

The longer Ben stays missing, the more Jess starts to dig into her brother’s situation, and the more questions she has. Ben’s neighbors are an eclectic bunch, and not particularly friendly. Jess may have come to Paris to escape her past, but it’s starting to look like it’s Ben’s future that’s in question.

The socialite – The nice guy – The alcoholic – The girl on the verge – The concierge

Everyone’s a neighbor. Everyone’s a suspect. And everyone knows something they’re not telling.”

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices . . . Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets?

A dazzling novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived, from the internationally bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and How To Stop Time.

Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better?

In The Midnight Library, Matt Haig’s enchanting new novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.”

I only got The Paris Apartment the other day, but as I had been waiting for it for such a long time (since I found out that it was being written!) it had to be next on my reading list.

The Midnight Library has been on my pile for a while and I thought that as I didn’t have a huge window before starting on my next load of Blog Tour books, it seemed the perfect book to fit in.

I am loving both of them so far and can’t wait to read more this weekend!

Sparks and Shadow by Ceara Nobles

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Seattle is full of monsters, and I’m the only one who can see them.

I’ve spent the last 17 years (AKA my whole life) pretending I can’t see the monsters who disguise themselves as humans. I may not have a place to live and my best friend may be moments away from getting in too deep with the city’s most dangerous drug lord, but I’m rolling with the status quo.

That is, until I save my arch enemy’s stupid life and find myself in a warehouse full of monsters.

Next thing I know, I’m in Monster Land (AKA not Seattle) and up to my ears in monsters, magic, and inevitable mayhem. If I want to get home, I have to join a band of revolutionaries and stay alive long enough to get back through the portal before war breaks out.

This’ll be a cinch.

Sparks and Shadow is a modern, action-packed YA portal fantasy featuring Fae mythology, magic, and slow-burn romance. This is the first book in the Rising Elements series.”

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 9 March so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Amazon, Goodreads, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

As with last week, I am still reading A Gallery of Mothers by J S Latshaw and The Maid by Nita Prose (click titles for link to Goodreads)

What do you plan on reading this weekend?
